many cities throughout the US begin to replace old pipes and with many
colleges updating their current facilities, installing water filters is a
top priority throughout many cities and towns as well as college
campuses across the United States. Water filtration systems
are not only vital to ensuring residents have access to clean and safe
drinking, but they?re also cost effective and easy to maintain with
updated technologies such as micro filtration systems.
new water filtration system for this university will be capable of
producing 250,000 gallons of filtered water a day and will not only
remove protozones such as giardia through micro filtration but will also
use less chemicals in the process of disinfection. The universities
current water system, which was first built in 1937, is only capable of
producing 150,000 gallons of clean water a day and wastes up to 75,000
gallons a day as backwash.
to this new water filtration systems is its ability to control tank
levels and lower them during times when the system is not in use such as
over the holiday break season. This ability will not only lower costs
for the university but will also increase its operating ability and cut
down on chemical costs and replacement filters.
The water filtration system was approved under a six million dollar budget and is expected to be up and running Spring 2011.
